How it felt to take the wheel, turn the key, and leave the ordinary world behind. Here is your chance to own a unique early production 462 4-v Continental in incredible condition. We will call it a survivor even though it looks like it may have seen a respray about 10 years ago. Finished in her factory correct Wimbledon White over a Light Blue Limoges Brocade interior and covered with a Black Heritage Roof this '68 is sure to impress. You will need to see this car up close to truly appreciate the originality and condition. This Continental appears to have been tucked away somewhere nice and dry for many years as we cannot find a single bubble under the vinyl roof which is strangely uncommon. We can track its history to Missouri and Florida for most of its life and then to South Dakota before it was purchaced and DRIVEN back to Chicago. The quarters and rockers remain original and perfectly solid. The panel gaps are true and the body is nice and straight. The door seams are dry and solid on all doors. We note very minot paint blems in the form of rock chips on the front brow and some little key dings by the trunk lock. We also note a small paint run on the drives side (see pics). Overall the body and paint, including jambs, all show very very nicely. The unibody structure on the underside is excellent, due in part to the standard factory undercoating. The rails and leaf spring boxes are dry and solid. The rear fuel cell is even straight and not dented which is unusual. The bushings are all complete and intact. This car is really fantastic all around. We even note original FoMo headlights ! All glass, chrome and bright-work on this time capsule are excellent ! CALL OR EMAIL TO HEAR FULL DESCRIPTION!
